MSRH Team & Friends – - we are in desperate need of foster homes (and forever homes too!) for our little family members.  Abandoned dogs are coming to us in record numbers! Please, if you can help us – even for just a week or two - visit our “Volunteer!” page from the left hand menu inside the site to see how you can become a foster.  If you decide to foster, there is a Foster Agreement” form on the left hand menu inside the site.  If you cannot foster, but would like to help us with our $4,000 per month boarding cost, please consider donating to MSRH.  Click “Donate!” from either our home page or from the left hand menu inside the site.  Thank You and God Bless You!

“Handsome is as handsome does. What does that mean? I never really understood the phrase.” Do you want to know who is going to explain it all to me . . . my new dads Stanley and David. They really like me and I really like them. They promised to get me treats so that I can gain a few more pounds. They also changed my name to Benson! That is so fitting of a handsome gentleman! I can’t wait to tell my dads about me and get to know them. Thank you MSRH, and stay tuned about my home adventures.

***Adopted*** Harley David (now Harley)

From Waiting In The Wings to the loving arms of my forever mom and dad, Janie and Roger. You can’t beat a run of good luck like that!  Dad and I are already best buds and mom says that there are dog parks in our future!  Cool – I’m on it!  Stay tuned for new pictures and stories of my forever home adventures!  Thanks MSRH!

Happy Labor Day weekend! Even though it’s a holiday, my friends here at MSRH consider it business as usual. My new mom and dad, Lori and Chad and I are extremely happy about that. I have a canine brother named Cody and he is going to show me all kinds of things like how to sweetly ask for treats. I will also have two human siblings and they promised to teach me to fetch, how to pick up my toys and also promised me a lot of cuddle time. Thank you MSRH and stay tuned for updated pictures and stories of our forever home adventures.

Summer is nearly over and I’ve found my forever home. My new mom, Diane has adopted from MSRH before. So, I now have a new canine sibling named Stella. That is great because I am a very loyal and mellow companion. Mom reports that we will spend our last days of summer relaxing, cuddling and a walks to enjoy the cooling temperatures. Thank you MSRH, you have made all my dreams come true.

I am ZEUS and I am happy to report that I have found my forever home with my new mom and dad, Ernell and Tony.

Let’s have breakfast on the veranda or dinner out on the terrace? Let’s plan to have a beautiful day. The kind of day where anything might happen.  And happen it did!  My new mom and dad, Linda and Bryan said that I am headed to their forever home in Austin, Texas. I’ve also got a new name. Maggie Louise, so fitting of a lovely lady. Every day is going to be a great day.  Walks.  Playing in the backyard.  Cuddling on the couch. Just me being the special little lady that I am! Stay tuned for new pictures and stories of my forever home adventures!  Thanks MSRH – it’s a perfect match!

Oh Boy! I’m trying to play it cool, since I am the most interesting dog in the world but I cannot. I’m so excited I cannot stop talking about it! I am taking the next transport to Michigan and into my new forever home. My new dad, Rob recently lost his little buddy, Harley the wonder dog. Dad promised to tell me all about him. Dad likes to visit the many lakes in Michigan and promised to take me too. Can you believe it? I get to play in water and get my paws dirty. . and it’s okay with everybody! I will be on my best behavior during transport, Dad! You will be so proud of me! Thank you MSRH. I cannot wait to send you new photos and updates of my new home in Michigan.
